The Growing Popularity of Vaping
A decade ago, it would have been hard to predict such amazing rise in vaping popularity. Just like the many products of the current century, the social media, e-commerce and several others, the e-cigarettes have become really important for the daily life of a lot of people. Everyday living would seem odd without vaping today. There are many other reasons why vaping continues to rise.
In the year 2009 when vaping was introduced and welcomed in the European and also the US markets, the sales have shown an exponential growth. There had been a sales of 360 million pounds in 2009 and this industry has certainly grown by 50 to 80 percent every year. This simply equates to about 1600 percent in just a matter of six years.
You should know that UK is currently the biggest market for sales in vaping device after the US. You can also see a great rise in the numbers of the switch that people make from the other traditional smoking options such as the nicotine patches and the nicotine gums. In the year 2014, spending on those patches and gums fell by 3 percent and this is noted to be the first dip in four straight years of 5 to 6 percent in growth. In the year 2015, e-cigarettes made six times the sales for the traditional therapies. These numbers are really huge. But, if you look at what these two options offer to the user, you cannot tell that they are quite surprising.
You must know that vaping has really taken the nicotine replacement model and this also turned into a more natural and a more fun transition from such cigarette smoking. You may be happy with this or not but the cigarettes have with them the social element which the gums as well as the patches are not able to replicate. But such has been done in vaping.
What is great about vaping is that you can have the fun of smoking minus the ill-effects. In fact, vaping has given that rise to a more social activity unlike what the cigarette smoking could. Know that the vaping culture has certainly exploded and with groups that form throughout the United Kingdom and other parts of the world. There are many dedicated online communities which bring together those vapers to discuss such intricacies of their hobby.
What is also great about vaping is the tailor-made experience. The vape mods would permit the vapers to have a personalized vaping experience. Whether you like more power or life from the bigger battery, the greater ability to produce such vapor or control on the voltage or wattage, there is a mod to suit. Often, the modification is aesthetic and such gives the e-cigarette a very unique and personalized look.
